Winners and Rewards

When I started this contest I really was planning to pick just one grand prize winner. I was not anticipating the submission of so many high-quality models. You guys have saved me a lot of time creating all this furniture from scratch, so it seems like the only fair thing to do is to give a customized character to everyone who submitted a model that we actually used.
